Abstract [en]

Middle Egyptian grammar is argued to show systematic reduction of grammatical coding of semantic differences in negative, passive, second tense, non-asserted, and relative environments vis-a-vis affirmative, active, indicative, and assertive constructions. This phenomenon, termed radiality, is argued to reflect the status of the former type of situations as cognitively non-canonical and more peripheral.
